In this holiday themed episode we take a look at the experimental new ride queuing system Disney is using to manage crowds with the new Rise of the Resistance ride at Galaxy’s Edge in Orlando Florida. We also talk about Bob Iger’s olive branch to Martin Scorsese regarding the on going tumult surrounding the famed directors opinion of Disney’s superhero movies. We’ll then look at a heart warming story of a fan’s gift to Olivia Newton-John and we’ll talk a bit about the much anticipated return of season 4 of The Expanse on Amazon Prime Video before winding down with a few holiday themed Insightful Picks of the Week and a very special holiday project our hosts have been working on for a few weeks as a present to all of our loyal audience.
We’ll be back in the New Year after a brief hiatus over the holidays with more great podcasts!
We wish each and every one of you a happy and healthy holiday and a wonderful new year.
How do you direct a show like The Mandalorian and somehow convince your children ages 6 and 11 to keep Baby Yoda a secret? We talk about how Bryce Dallas Howard accomplished this very thing. We’ll also take a look at the issues surrounding merchandise for the show and we’ll talk about the opening of the new Rise of the Resistance ride in Walt Disney World.
In Entertainment News we’ll look at how Tiffany Haddish is embracing her Jewish identity. We will grudgingly acknowledge the honor bestowed upon “The Irishman” by the National Board of Review who apparently think there’s an overall shortage of Mafia movies and that we needed yet another Martin Scorsese Mafia movie with the same actors playing all too similar roles as so many others.
We start this week off with a brief editorial on the strong arm tactics of Disney Entertainment which resulted in us having to edit out scenes from a recent Disney trailer. Then we move on to discuss the new VR experience Avengers: Damage Control, we’ll take a look at a new promotion that will pay participants $1,000 to binge watch Disney movies and take a look at a heart warming experience by Captain Marvel herself Brie Larson at a recent convention.
People are stealing Disney rides, the Little Mermaid Live adds a ‘Glee’ Alum and we get some details on the new “Behind the Attraction” Docuseries that will be premiering sometime in the near future on the Disney+ streaming service.
In Entertainment news Samuel L. Jackson has some choice words for Martin Scoresese, the return of the Animaniacs, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is going on a Jungle Cruise, and Mark Hamill is shooting a new movie in the podcasts neck of the woods.
A brief “In Memoriam’ to a fallen Mouseketeer and we finish up with our Insightful Picks of the week for another great podcast.
